Picard curves over $\mathbb{Q}$ with good reduction away from 3

  • Beth Malmskog (a1) and Christopher Rasmussen (a2)

Abstract

Inspired by methods of N. P. Smart, we describe an algorithm to determine all Picard curves over $\mathbb{Q}$ with good reduction away from 3, up to $\mathbb{Q}$ -isomorphism. A correspondence between the isomorphism classes of such curves and certain quintic binary forms possessing a rational linear factor is established. An exhaustive list of integral models is determined and an application to a question of Ihara is discussed.
